    Xhaka to the bench. Time to start booing Emery and maybe he can be benched next.

    Lots of rumors that Saudis, specifically MbS, are buying United for around 4 billion pounds.

    I absolutely hate the idea and may legitimately stop being a fan if it’s true.

    Oliver is the only ref in the league that deserves that fixture.

    Nice compilation of angry Man U fans from the past year.



    The only other fan base that is nearly this bitter is Arsenal's.

    I'd be fascinated to see the reaction of MbS buying United. Hope it doesn't happen for non-sporting reasons, but the world's reaction would be something.

    It’s tough because let’s be real, just about everyone who owns a team or has the money to buy a team is pretty ****ty in some form. Most I would say in a more capitalistic form, but MbS is just a horrible human on so many levels that it feels different with him.

    Don’t know the backstory here. Would someone be able to shed light on why he’s so bad?

    Right. Like even with Roman, I'm sure he's done some shady and illegal stuff in business. With MbS, you have the same feelings, but regards to human rights. It's just such a different type of pill to swallow.

    City's owners are lesser known to people that aren't knowledgeable on it though. MbS is just a much bigger figure to the general public.

    Where to start... he kills reporters who stick up for womens rights, he basically submits minorities to slavery, he gives women no rights, and he bombed a hospital in Yemen. Off the top of my head that's what I can think of, he's just an evil dictator that is just one of, if not the worst people currently alive right now.

    True but it doesn’t make it better. Like Chevy for instance who have killed more than MBS but do not have a face.

    Yeah, most likely he ordered the Jamal Khashoggi killing.

    It's definitely different. And like I said, it's not like most owners are "saints", I'd even say that almost all of them have done very very ****ty things. But few of them violate human rights like MbS does.

    I mean I'm sure United would end up being a really good team again with MbS at the helm, similar to how City became a power.

    He's not quite as bad/brutal as Kim Jong Un or Assad, but he's easily in the top 5 and in terms of countries with a major international foothold, he's right near the top.

    The bombings in Yemen (or civilians, schools and hospitals), jailing of women's rights activists, treatment of minorities inside Saudi Arabia, killing of Khashoggi, and arresting and confiscating/stealing 100 billion in wealth to fund his empire/PR campaign are some of the highlights.

    If I was making a power rankings(oof lol), I think MbS would be 2nd behind Kim Jung Un.

    But I mean they're all human garbage so it's not like it matters really.

    Sorry, just to clarify. You mean Assad is infinitely worse, or MbS is infinitely worse?

    I'm assuming the former...

    As always, absolutely love when this comes up.

    "Yeah Qatar and Saudi Arabia are bad, but have you heard about Chevrolet????"

    lol.

    You're talking to classic super-leftist reactionary.

    Of course Assad isn't as bad to him, he's aligned against the "West". Chlorine gassings and barrel bombs be damned.

    On an actual footballing note...apparently Son's red card has been overturned. Son is probably one of my favourite non-Liverpool/Dutch players but this is farcical IMO.

    There aren't any rules to prevent certain people from owning a club?

    So technically Kim Jong Un can buy an English club?
